Valley Childcare and Learning Center in Paradise Valley is one of nine preschools and childcare centers in Phoenix. They offer affordable, educational care for ages 6 weeks to age 5, giving a firm foundation for transition into kindergarten and beyond!
Valley Childcare is a popular choice for parents and for good reason. Their program cost include hot meals and snacks, or diapers and baby food. They also offer daily rates. Yes, you read that correctly – daily rates. Pay only for the days your child is in the center! So if you need last minute childcare or only three days a week, your little one will be welcomed! This unique offer is not found in any other Phoenix based childcare/preschool group.
The curriculum followed by Valley Childcare is divided into two groups, Buttercups (ages 0-3), and Fireflies (ages 3-5). Both focus on the familiar letters, numbers, and colors with fun themes like I Am Special, On the Farm, Sail Away, and Great Outdoors. Important social skills are also instilled in every day activities with the children, such as teamwork and respect. More than just a daycare, Valley Childcare comes alongside your child with love and support in the crucial beginning years of life.
We took a tour of Valley Childcare last month and were immediately drawn to the large canvas prints on the wall. Our tour guide explained that these are photos of children from their centers, and it made the atmosphere so inviting and cheerful. What’s not to love about photos of smiling children? Feels like home!
We got a sneak peek into a couple classrooms, as well as the kitchen, and outdoor playground areas. The kids were happy to see everything from rideable cars, to slides, to free play toys! From a parent perspective, the balanced mix of learning time and playtime was exactly what I would want for my toddler and preschooler. I was also impressed by the closed circuit TV monitoring system, and key code on the front door for safety. Valley Childcare clearly loves their children and provides a safe, healthy, and happy environment.
Of special note, Valley Childcare was included in a recent review of the Top 10 Preschools in Phoenix! You can read more about this wonderful award here. I believe this this mention speaks volumes of the quality care and education provided. Valley Childcare was founded in the late 1960’s from a family with high values and beliefs. The fact that this preschool has stood the ups and downs of the last 50 years proves that it is a pillar in the community.
